Education Minister Ruairi Quinn will meet survivors of the Bethany Children's Home in Dublin today, to hear calls for their inclusion in the redress scheme for victims of institutional abuse.

It emerged last year that one child died every three weeks at the Protestant-run Bethany Home in Rathgar from 1935 to 1940.

Chairperson of the Bethany Survivors Derek Linster said he hoped Minister Quinn would give them a fair hearing.

"We don't want to be treated any differently," he said.
